A couple things could be going on here.
1. Looks like the connection to MySQL is being blocked which would be port 3306. Make sure antivirus/firewall isn't killing the connection.
You'll need to create an exception on any firewall that is between you and the MySQL server.
2. Another possibility is remote connections are being denied by MySQL. You have to change that setting at the MySQL Server.

Server Name: localhost (it worked for me)
Username: root (it worked for me)
Password: Use the password you used when you installed mysql
Database Name: choose a name - example: test
then click Test Connection
Let me know if it helped.

But even if he doesn't specify the database name, it will choose the default. The problem is something is interferring with his connection. I can see from his screenshot that he is specifying all that info.

I cannot see from the screen shot that he is specifying all that information. To me, it doesn't look like he has a default database.
The following worked on all my computers:

Oh i completely agree. His screen shot is cut off. Maybe he does need to specify the default database name to get it to connect. Then again, his mysql may be denying remote connections which is my other thought.
